2-Day iTWIST'18 Doctoral School

CIRM, Marseille, France. 19 - 20 November​, 2018

News: 15/1/18: iTWIST'18 doctoral school "Call for participants" is now available.

For this edition, iTWIST'18 will organize a 2-day doctoral school preceding the workshop, on Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th November​, 2018 in CIRM, Marseille, France.

The objective of the doctoral school is to give the opportunity to PhD students and postdoctoral fellows to learn some of the theoretical and applicative concepts that will be discussed in the workshop. The school will be divided into three courses (two of 4h30 and one of 3h) taught in English and will occur before the workshop.

The topics of the courses will be:

  • Ulugbek Kamilov (Washington University in St. Louis, USA), “Computational Imaging with Convex and Non-Convex Optimization”,
  • Alexandre Gramfort (Inria, Université Paris-Saclay, France), “Optimization strategies for fast inverse problems under sparsity constraints (with some applications in neuroimaging)”,
  • Laurent Jacques (UCLouvain, Belgium), “Compressed sensing: theory, extensions, and applications”.

The Compressed Sensing course will introduce the basic theory, as well as geometrical intuitions and finally tackle the case of one-bit and quantized CS. The Computational Imaging course will describe computational imaging problems such as inverse scattering, tomography or radar imaging and in the process will tackle convex and non-convex optimization problems, a quite active field these days. Finally the course on Optimization strategies for fast inverse problems under sparsity constraint will present fast algorithms for sparse representation and deal with brain imaging data.

Important: The number of seats at CIRM being limited to 40, interested participants are invited to send an application to the scientific committee (more information will be given soon).
